The gentlemen at Gentleman Quinns have only one goal in mind; bring the Blunt to its rightful place at the top of Colorado’s Marijuana Industry. Let that sink in. There are no luxury blunts in the nations first regulated Marijuana Capital? Either you never noticed or asked a bud-tender once, but the apparent pre-roll void is about to get a lot of attention. Aside from your run of the mill dispensary rolled joints, the blunt, an item as synonymous with marijuana as a cigar is to tobacco, has been non-existent in Colorado pot shops. Thats because out of the 225 licensed, recreational cannabis product companies in Colorado, 0 cater to the luxury pre-roll market.
Things are about to change with the entrance Gentleman Quinns High Class Big Ass Blunts. The first such company of its kind and they want to make it known.
High Class Big Ass Blunts
There is not much that stands as true to the saying “times are changing” than the idea that one day you can buy a blunt over the shelf. Well, what if it wasn’t just any blunt you rolled with gas station brand cigar wraps? What if these blunts were completely tobacco free, green and 100% cannabis the way it was meant to be? Gentleman Quinns High Class Big Ass Blunts aims to bring their massive two gram pre rolled blunts to dispensaries throughout Denver. Individually handcrafted by the “Gentleman Quinn” himself, a Colorado native with a penchant for rolling circular densely stuffed “big ass” blunts.
But the blunt is just half the story. These guys are serious about the being the first to hit the market and the responsibility that comes with that. “Theres a lot of products out, but the smoking setting is something we represent. We didn’t just want to make a carton of joints. We knew we wanted to create the expectation before even smoking the blunt,” explains Co-Owner Jarell Wall who steers the ship along with partners Quinn and Austin Pflumm. What he’s eluding too is the packaging and presentation you receive with every blunt. The aptly coined “blunt humidors” are handcrafted cherry red wooden cases that package each blunt. Incredibly detailed inside and out; from the original Colorado themed label designs on the front, to the damask fabric inside with gold tissue paper encasing the sealed blunt. The blunts come in singles and triple boxes. What is sure to over take regular cigars at Colorado weddings, these almost seem too high class to smoke without a three piece suit or evening gown.
Whats also interesting is the method Gentleman Quinns plans to bring their blunts to market. Since forming in 2015, they’ve been through a rollercoaster of having a limited release in a Denver dispensary, Chronorado Medical, amassing over 130 individual sales in 5 months, learning Colorado’s licensing process, being offered an investment and declining the deal. The journey leads here, launching Colorado’s first cannabis small business crowdsourcing campaign. “We are independent and serious about our having our own direction. We want to show that after all it took to get to this point in legalization, the industry is for everyone,” explains Wall.
He points out that, though we are only 5 years into legalization, there is still work to be done in terms of ownership amongst the working youth. “More times than not, we’ll visit a dispensary and theres someone in our age range, 20’s to 30’s running the whole shop. Everyone took the risk of coming to this industry to do something different and to build something new. Because of current costs of licensing people are being boxed out.” So they have enlisted the help of the cannabis friendly crowdsourcing site, Indiegogo.com. “We need help with licensing costs and think crowdsourcing can be a great avenue. Indiegogo has been receptive to cannabis and Gentleman Quinns. We want people to see our vision and donate whatever they can to help us do something absolutely needed in Colorado.“
This is definitely a product to keep an eye on. As impressive as Gentleman Quinns blunts are, we encourage everyone to visit gentlemanquinns.com to learn more about them.
